Explore enables you to share public links to dashboards that anyone can view, regardless of whether they have a Zendesk profile. Additionally, you can schedule dashboard deliveries with end users.
If you're an account owner or an admin, you can control access to dashboard sharing for other admins and editors from the Dashboard sharing permissions menu. Use this article to learn about the permissions you can change.
Important: Always review the content of any dashboards you share or schedule externally and follow your organization’s security policies.
Changing dashboard sharing permissions (Explore Enterprise)
Use this procedure to learn how to control access to dashboard sharing in your organization.
To configure dashboard sharing permissions
- In Explore, open the Admin menu () on the left panel, then select Dashboard sharing permissions ().
- On the Dashboard sharing permissions page, configure the following
options as required:
- Enable creating public links to dashboards: Enables editors and admins to share public links to dashboards. This lets anyone with the link access the dashboard, regardless of whether they have a Zendesk account. For more information, see Sharing Explore dashboards outside Zendesk.
- Enable scheduling dashboards to end users: Enables editors and admins to schedule dashboard deliveries to end users. For more information, see Scheduling dashboard deliveries.
- When you are finished, click Save.
This is very frustrating... We had been on the Legacy Support Suite Professional and we were just upgraded to the Zendesk Suite Professional this month. Link sharing functionality was removed from Professional level and is now only Enterprise level? Perhaps in your chart of all the great things you will get if you upgrade it should include the things you are taking away. We had reports going out to all of our clients every week and now I would need to manually compile these and email them myself? So, I wasted hours of time training and reinforcing behavior with my client base to get them to used to the tools you have taken away. What a waste of my time building those dashboards.
You're right Brian, this shouldn't have been taken away. Zendesk, please reinstate this for Pro subscription. Thank you.
Agreed. Please bring this back. The Explore reports are far too complex, and the standard charts were far better.

I am having an issue sharing dashboards. I've enabled the sharing permissions and sent an invite to the user, however the user/agent never receives anything. I then have to go back and copy the link and send it that way. Is there a reason the invite may not be going through?
Hi CaSonya Featherston I'm not sure why it wouldn't be sending so I'm opening up a ticket on your behalf so the team can investigate this. You should hear from someone soon. Thanks!
Thank you Rob, I appreciate it!
How do you set permissions for decomposition of reports when sharing a public link?
Hi Bart, decompose and other interactivity options are automatically disabled when you share dashboards externally, so you won't be able to set specific permissions in that instance.
Hi @Rob Stack,
any chance zendesk will allow us to limit the sharing to not just external, but to make it available via jwt or sso to endusers? Cheers
I hope all is well! At the moment, sharing/scheduling dashboards with end users are the best option. We have taken your feedback internally!
I hope this helps! Thanks!
